The Buffalo Bills signed their first sixth round pick, Kolby Listenbee, on Thursday.

Both sixth round picks are now under contract.

The Buffalo Bills signed wide receiver Kolby Listenbee to a rookie contract on Thursday. Buffalo has now signed both of their sixth round picks.

After signing his contract, Listenbee told, "“It’s just a blessing. Growing up you’re watching the NFL and you just want to be a part of it. Now I’m a part of it, so I’m just looking forward to the opportunity.”

Listenbee joins the Bills after a career at TCU. In 2015, Listenbee caught 30 passes for 597 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games while dealing with a hip injury. The best season of Listenbee's college career was in 2014. That season, Listenbee caught 41 passes for 753 yards and four touchdowns in 13 games. Of Listenbee's 753 yards that season, 526 of the yards were deep yards according to Pro Football Focus.


During his four seasons at TCU, Listenbee caught 74 passes for 1,432 yards and nine touchdowns.

Listenbee can absolutely fly down the field. He posted a 4.39 40-yard dash at the combine with a sports hernia. In addition to his speed, Listenbee also has good size (6’0”) and has been praised for his ability to track the ball. Listenbee is known for having good hands and the receiver could emerge as another deep threat for Tyrod Taylor. 

Buffalo's wide receiver position depth is wide open beyond Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods. Listenbee will have the chance to compete for a role immediately at wide receiver and should be used on special teams.
